Workshop description: 

Hoopers fall between categories of prop manipulators, circus artists, and dancers. In this workshop we explore hooping from a dance perspective. Rebecca shares various dance techniques including floor work, weight transfer, turning and extension in combination with the hoop. These techniques in combination with increased anatomical awareness balance and improve your hoop practice.

With 20+ years of formal dance training, Rebecca offers a unique approach to hooping drawing from various dance techniques including classical ballet, contemporary dance and contact improvisation.
